This stunning Ford Thunderbolt, a true to form replica that follows a
lightweight fiberglass front clip with a built 427, tough Toploader
transmission and beefy Currie 9-inch, is about as cool as they come. If
you're in the market for some instantly recognizable muscle that's stacked
with first class looks and a nasty disposition, you're reading about your
A series of 100 units produced for the 1964 model year, The Ford Fairlane
Thunderbolt was an experimental, drag race only automobile that combined
lightweight Fairlane bodies with dual-quad Galaxie motors. Although the
Galaxie had proven itself in NASCAR, it was simply too heavy to be drag
raced with any significant success. After Ford had stripped the car into a
semi-victorious 'lightweight', they decided to apply the same formula to
the Fairlane. The result was a storied track champion that, when compared
to the Galaxie, was 3 inches shorter, weighed 700 pounds less and
unofficially produced over 600 horsepower.
Not surprisingly, this awesome Fairlane drove out of Ford's Dearborn
assembly plant at the beginning of the great American performance wars.
After spending a short time as random showroom candy, it began a long life
of solid maintenance and back road workout routines. And today, covered in
a familiar coat of Vintage Burgundy two-stage, it sits as the beneficiary
of a thorough, frame-off restoration that was conducted on solid, original
bones. Pull the car into the harsh winter sun and you'll see good looking
paintwork that presents well from every angle. Underneath that paint, the
body's Kansas-flat panels say a lot about the integrity of their platform.
And overall, that platform's alignment rates well above anything the
factory offered, featuring even gaps and tight closing hinges all the way
When Dearborn brass decided to shove beefy big blocks into mid-size
Fairlanes, they probably had a hard time keeping a straight face. And, when
you get behind the wheel of this new age Thunderbolt, you'll understand
exactly why. Unpin the hood and you'll find a show-detailed Ford V8 that's
been bored and stroked to 482 cubic inches of raw, big block power!
Take a peek under the car and you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis
that's punctuated by Satin Black floors and, in traditional Thunderbolt
fashion, a substantially re-engineered suspension. At the center of that
suspension, a road-ready Toploader 4-speed proves just as effective as ever
at slinging gears and scorching stoplights. That transmission channels
power to a 9-inch Currie rear end, which exchanges a brutal 4.58 factory
set up for mild, 3.55 cruisers. There's a rebuilt steering system that
combines with manual front disc and rear drum brakes to make turns easy and
stopping a cinch. And torque meets the pavement through polished Radir
Tri-Ribb IIIs, which spin 6.40-15 Firestone Deluxe Champions in front of
7.75-15 Radir Cheater Slicks.
Between the standard steel doors, a Light Beige Metallic interior strikes a
nice balance of authenticity and livability. While the lightweight bucket
and bench seats may not look like the lap of luxury, a brief stint behind
the wheel reveals a comfortable and compliant ride. Correct rubber flooring
frames a correct chrome shifter. The dash is stock, hanging factory
telemetry and correct deletes between a big tachometer, a small Auto Meter
oil gauge and a correct glove box disclaimer tag. And in front of the
driver, an ornate factory steering wheel provides a touch of class.
There simply aren't that many chances to own a clean, well-done Thunderbolt
-- especially at this price. If you're looking for a different kind of

Firing up the 64 Fairlane.
It hasn't been started since March of this year. But the big block started
right up like its no big deal. Had this car for a long time , bought it
when I was 18, Drove in stock form back and forth to work in the eighties,
then started working on it and street raced it in the late eighties to
early nineties. In 93 I back halfed it, then started bracket racing at the
strip.In 2000, I built the front clip, and switched to big block. Me and
this car have seen a lot of fun together.
